Abstract:
The apparatus here described was devised for the special purpose of testing the efficiency of mesh reinforcement in concrete slabs. The reinforcement was present in relatively low percentages. On account of the nature of such reinforcement, it was thought advisable to have the loading uniformly distributed so that its influence would be the same in all directions.
